Digital Radiography

We don’t rely on uncomfortable, time-consuming film x-rays at our Birmingham oral facial surgery practice. We use digital x-rays to quickly and comfortably assess your teeth and jaws. Our digital x-rays also expose you to far less radiation than traditional x-rays and let you see your own images in close detail. We can use digital x-rays to detect impacted teeth, monitor your jaw growth and development, and identify a host of other dental issues.

Intraoral Scanner

We take digital impressions (no gagging on goopy impression materials here!) with a modern intraoral scanner. We use the small, handheld wand to quickly scan your teeth and gums. The process only takes a few minutes and you can breathe normally during it. The scanner provides us with an exact replica of your teeth so that we can create restorations that fit perfectly or develop precise treatment plans.

3D Imaging

At Lisa Miller Oral Facial Surgery, we use a high-tech, 3D imaging system to diagnose patients and create the most accurate treatment plans possible. We rely on the CS 9300 Cone Beam CT to obtain crystal clear, digital images, while exposing patients to less radiation. The scan is taken in an open, seated environment in a matter of seconds and it’s sent almost instantly to our screen. We’re able to get an incredible amount of visual information that can’t be matched with a two-dimensional x-ray.

The 3D images lets us see your entire dental and facial structure, including your teeth, bones, sinuses and nerve pathways. Dr. Miller can even measure the density of your jawbone. We can target specific views, enhance the contrast, extract images, and more in order to plan your treatment from every angle. Because of these features, there are no retakes and we can focus specifically on your area of concern, further reducing your radiation exposure.

We can also use the images to walk you through the treatment plan and we can quickly and easily share them with your referring doctor for better collaboration.

Whether you have aesthetic or oral health concerns, we’ve got you covered. Schedule a visit to meet with our Birmingham oral surgeon.
